Yeah, I know you’ve heard me complain time after time about not being able to break a sweat while I run in heat and humidity.
But, after today’s run, I have decided if I can’t find a way to help cool my body while I run, I won’t be able to do this training throughout the summer. I am at the point of near desperation. My first 2 miles today were good and I had a good cadence, but mile 3 was a killer. 3 miles in the heat feels like a half marathon to me! I even took my little squirt water bottle but it didn’t help and it was bothersome to use.
I never dreamed that’s I’d be envious of people who sweat! 🙂 The other day when I had to run on the treadmill, the sweat was pouring out of my body and I was loving it. But, I hate treadmill running.
Yes, I am one of those whiney runners: if my shoes are tied to tight, if they are tied too loose, if feel a pebble in my shoe, if my ear buds are tangled, if my iPod stops, if my bra strap slips down, if my undies ride up my butt….practically anything. I’m a high maintenance runner.
But at the suggestion of Lisa Macy Coaching, I’m going to try to find a cooling bandana or towel. I found some things that are carried in sporting goods stores.
It’s worth a try and there are good reviews on them plus they supposedly last 2 hours or so.
Yes, I am high maintenance but with all the things that I am willing to subject myself to for the 26.2 sticker…
